Reference Number: DX-022-298

A cricket match in which a large aggressive bowler with the letters 'ICC' on his back bowls a ball which bounces and then hits the batter on the head with the result that the batter knocks the wicket with his bat. The ball's trajectory is cleverly made up of a series of 'N's and/or 'Z's (NZ) which become the word 'Zimbabwe'. Refers to the current question of whether the New Zealand Cricket Team should go on tour to Zimbabwe in August; there is increasing pressure to stop the tour because of President Robert Mugabe's human rights' record. The International Cricket Council is refusing to take an ethical stand against playing Zimbabwe with the result that New Zealand will have to pay a large fine if the tour is cancelled.
